What speed do you shift a 9 speed transmission?

Situation dependent. Most schools will teach you to upshift at 1500 RPMs with any transmission. Which is fine and dandy if you're running long distances on flat terrain, and won't be shifting much throughout the day. But if you're going up mountains, or going from traffic light to traffic light, you're going to bog your motor down severely, and reduce component life. In these instances, you want to shift between 1800 - 2000 RPMs. This means you'll also catch your next gear in a higher RPM range than you would if you shifted at 1500 RPMs.
